I too love beer. I believe last time we paid about $5 per bottle of Sam Adams.I did pack a couple of random ones in our luggage. We sailed on the Victory in April 07 just a couple of weeks after my husband returned from Iraq. Our tab was almost $2000. About $1000 was in booze
Last cruise though we were good and smuggled a lot on board so we would save money. That tab was about $300. It is vacation, so have a good time, but I'm with you. I hate spending so much money on alcohol. We were really celebrating back in April 07, but now we are used to each other again
Enjoy your cruise!
